Market for mobile phone biometric security products and services set to grow and will generate over $161 million revenue by 2015

The report, “Mobile Phone Biometric Security – Analysis and Forecasts 2011 – 2015”, shows that the key drivers behind this market growth and the adoption of mobile phone biometric security include:

- Device security protection: Protecting the device against unauthorised access is the biggest driver for mobile phone biometric security. This includes protection of both apps and the data that resides on the device
- Mobile Commerce: The growth of mCommerce and the need to effectively secure the ecosystem on the mobile
- NFC: The contactless technology that is reaching tipping point could well be a major driver
- Convenient alternative to PINs and password: Swiping a finger on a phone or providing a verbal ‘voiceprint' can be an easier and far more convenient way to provide authentication than conventional technologies
- As part of a multi-factor authentication solution: With the recent attack on RSA, leading to vulnerabilities being exposed in its SecureID token technology, there is a pressing need for strong and agile authentication solutions – mobile phone-based biometric security can be a viable part of this solution
- Military and law enforcement: A cost-effective method for capturing biometric data and verifying identity in the field
